Happy “where’d all my money go?” new release Tuesday, everyone!
As you know, the most exciting day of the week in this community is the day that follows the one we all dread (Mondays for the nope) and today we’re going to highlight some of the new books chipping away at our bank accounts — but each one is so worth it.
BRINGING DOWN THE DUKE by Evie Dunmore is a fantastic debut addition to the historical romance genre. This is the first in a series in which a fiercely independent vicar’s daughter takes on a powerful duke in a love story that threatens to upend the British social order. Hollis AND Micky loved this! Look for their reviews tomorrow.
THE HARP OF KINGS is the newest offering from Juliet Marillier. This new series opener features bards and warriors and even has a few throwaway references to her last series, Blackthorn and Grim — but this can totally stand on it’s own. If you love historical fiction with fantasy leanings, specifically fae, you should definitely check this out. And then go back and read all the Sevenwaters books..
DARKDAWN, the final book in the Nevernight Chronicle trilogy, by Jay Kristoff, is off to stab stab stab its way into your heart. Possibly literally. Look for Hollis’ review later today!
THE GIRL THE SEA CAME BACK by Adrienne Young is the companion to SKY IN THE DEEP. I would definitely recommend this viking YA fantasy, particularly to those who didn’t love the first book (like me), because it was everything that was good about book one but.. better and more.
THERE WILL COME A DARKNESS by Katy Rose Pool is a mashup of GRACELING and a more mature Falling Kingdoms while also being a great twisty, epic, dark fantasy. Hollis really enjoyed this and can’t wait for more.
